LiveAction’s Baby Olivia Video is Compelling

LiveAction has produced a beautiful video that pulls back the curtain on the glories within the womb. In its short three minutes, we’re treated to a portrayal of the first nine months of a human life. According to LiveAction, 12 percent of pro-choice people changed their minds after watching, and 37 percent of those already pro-life became “more pro-life.”

It’s this power to persuade which led doctors and lawyers to include “3-D and 4-D ultrasound images of unborn children” in their support of Mississippi’s challenge to Roe v. Wade at the Supreme Court. Looking these hidden figures “in the eye” highlights the vanity of the aging pro-abortion talking point about a “blob of cells.”

When abortion became legal in 1973, it was easy to say that fetuses weren’t human. But, as time has gone on and imaging technology has grown clearer, it has become harder to argue that what we see isn’t a fellow human being.
